CRUCIFIED BARBARA announced its breakup in June 2016, two years after the release of the band’s fourth album, “In The Red”. The group explained at the time that “our lives have parted and we need to move on. The last years have taken its toll on all of us and the joy of playing together got lost somewhere along the way.”
